Factory Navi software upgrades?

hello all

ok my navi window says i have SW 4-1/30. I cant get this audiotext option. and i have no option for the birds eye perspective in which i believe is the secret menu...correct me if im wrong....... this picture


i get this by holding Menu while in the settings screen



and here is the 4-1/30 from the settings menu




does the bmw dealer upgrade the navi under warantee or will i have to pay?
i also found ( through guidance from memebrs here) the x5 forum with the v29.1 version and am wondering.. can i use this in the z4?

My 07 Z4MC has the birdseye view available. It was at the bottom of the service menu if memory serves.

Knowing BMW, they will likely charge for what it basically a firmware upgrade to the Nav system.

No. You have version 23 per the nav forum:

I have successfully upgraded to v29.1 on my 2004 z4. There are numerous articles on the web about how to do it or you can buy a pre-made cd from ebay:

But I held my breath the entire time.....

I too upgraded my 06 Z4M Coupe from 27.1 to 29.1 on my own. It went smoothly using the recommended procedures found on X5world.

Thanks Jarrow. I just got the v29.1 s/w and plan on creating a custom splash screen next. Then I can load it up.

Just a heads up. When it states to burn your CD at the slowest possible rate believe it. I burned my custom CD at 2x thinking it was slow enough and then the new version would not load from the CD I created.

ok so cdclone wouldnt work for me. but imgburn did!

everything works fine now and ive noticed the maps are way smoother now compared to the previous sw 4-1/30 version

the only thing is i still dont get the audiotext option when i push info.

NOW i have a question regarding listening to CD-R recorded music. first of all i am not using MP3 Cds with 100+ songs, just the standard that holds about 18 songs.

i would estimate 90% of the time when i use CD-R music i get CDERROR. and if i dont get CDERROR right away sometimes, and it would play, i cant change tracks. OR i would get CDERROR after a few tracks.

i have not tried using 100+ song MP3 discs yet since i dont have a program to burn that type.. yet..

is there a certain program and certain parameters i should be using?
